Roof Insulation - EnergyGuard Composite Board

EnergyGuard™

Composite Board PolyIso Roof Insulation

Description

EnergyGuard™ Composite Board Roof Insulation consists of an isocyanurate foam core integrally bonded to 1/2” thick EnergyGuard™ High Density Fiberboard or EnergyGuard™ perlite on one side and a strong organic glass facer sheet on the other.


Advantages
  • The excellent insulating qualities of isocyanurate foam are combined with the strong surface characteristics of high density fiberboard or perlite.

  • The fiberboard or perlite side is able to receive hot mopped roof membranes that comply with NRCA bulletin #9.

  • Subject to the conditions of approval as a roof insulation when installed as shown in the current edition of the Factory Mutual Approvals Guide.

  • Fast and easy to apply –– light in weight –– can be applied to metal decks with mechanical fasteners such as the FM-approved Drill-Tec™ roof insulation fastener system.

  • Bonded components –– possibility of delamination virtually eliminated.

  • High resistance to compression ­­–– not easily damaged by imposed loads, construction traffic, shipping or handling.


Uses
  • EnergyGuard™ Composite Board roof insulation is designed for use over structural roof decks where “R” values of 7.4 or higher are required, along with moderate insulation thickness for roof edge detailing, and where comprehensive UL and FM approvals are necessary.

  • When properly installed, it is suitable for use under built-up, modified bitumen and most single-ply roofing systems.

  • Refer to the membrane manufacturer’s current application and specifications manual for proper installation procedures.

  • EnergyGuard™ Composite Board roof insulation, installed fiberboard or perlite side up, is an ideal insulation surface to receive a solid mopped, built-up or modified bitumen roof systems, and fleece-back single-ply systems.



Traffic/Storage/Potential Fire Hazard
  • EnergyGuard™ Composite Board is normally installed with the fiberboard or perlite side up.

  • EnergyGuard™ Composite Board roof insulation is non-structural, non-load bearing material. It is not designed for direct traffic usage unless adequately protected.

  • Do NOT use EnergyGuard™ Composite Board insulation with perlite with fully adhered single ply membranes. (Use fiberboard for single ply).

  • EnergyGuard™ Composite Board roof insulation should be stored dry and protected from the elements. No more insulation should be installed than can be completely covered with roofing on the same day.

  • As unprotected composite board will burn, fire safety precautions must be observed wherever insulation products are used.

  • Direct torching of modified bitumen roofing to EnergyGuard™ Composite Board roof insulation will present a fire hazard. A properly installed fiber glass base MUST be used over the insulation.


Code Compliance
  • Listed by Underwriters Laboratories for use as part of a Class A, B or C Roof Covering. See UL Inc. Roofing Materials and Systems Directory for details.

  • Subject to the conditions of approval as a roof insulation when installed as shown in the current edition of the Factory Mutual Approvals Guide.

  • Mechanical attachment of roof insulation is the most dependable method of attachment to steel decks since it minimizes lateral movement and wind blow-off.

  • For details, consult Factory Mutual Loss Prevention Sheet 1-28, 1-29, 1-28R, 1-29R and Approval Guide.

  • Federal Specifications HH-I-1972/Gen, and HH-1-1972/3.

WARNING: DO NOT EXPOSE TO OPEN FLAME OR EXCESSIVE HEAT. MAY BURN IF IGNITED. IF IGNITED, EXTINGUISH COMPLETELY.

NOTE: REPAIR ROOF LEAKS PROMPTLY TO AVOID ADVERSE EFFECTS, INCLUDING MOLD.
